December 28 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's Road Infrastructure Agency (API) said on Thursday the construction of a 234.1 million levs ($142.9 million/119.6 million euro) stretch of Struma motorway between the towns of Kresna and Sandanski is expected to be completed by end-2018, six months ahead of schedule.
Around 90% of the motorway culverts and 70% of the revetments are already completed, the government agency said in a statement.
The engineering and construction works on the 24-kilometre stretch are carried out by a tie up comprising local construction companies GBS Infrastrukturno Stroitelstvo, Patstroy-92, Glavbolgarstroy, and Geostroy.
The Struma motorway, with a total length of 173.3 km, is part of pan-European transport Corridor IV, linking Bulgaria's capital Sofia with Kulata crossing on the border with Greece. Its construction is divided into four sections, of which three are completed: Dolna Dikanya – Dupnitsa, Dupnitsa – Blagoevgrad, and Sandanski-Kulata. The fourth section, linking Blagoevgrad with Sandanski, remains to be built.
